Oakley Mens Flak 2.0 XL Polarized Sunglasses, One Size
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I've worn the Half Jackets for quite a few years now but it was time to move up to something new since getting lenses for the original version is getting pretty hard. There's a few things I like better about the flak 2.0 in comparison. First is the size, the old half jackets gripped my head very tightly (and I have a pretty small/normal head size) so after a few hours wearing them they would start to give me a headache. These still stay securely on my head but without nearly as much pressure so they are more comfortable over long wearing sessions such as driving all day. The other thing I noticed is the lenses are a little bigger with better coverage than the old half jacket xlj's. Also I have to admit at first I thought the whole prism lens thing was just another gimmick but after using them for awhile I really do think that for the recommended use the tints they have provided are excellent. I also have a prism daily polarized set of lenses and even compared to my other Oakley...
As other reviews have stated, make sure to review/register when you purchase to ensure they are legitimate. Mine are, so no worries there.
These are very comfortable, and the optics are as good as people say. It's a bit strange at first, but once on the trail they do really make a big difference over standard lenses. I was using a pair of photo-chromatic lenses before, which struggled in wooded/open trails given the frequent light changes. These look great, although the lens color could be a negative for sum, and have yet to fog up for me on a handful of rides.
Great glasses - the Flak frame is a nice fit for guys and girls. I really like the color of the Root Beer frame as well as the shallow water lenses. I have worn them on water, trails and road all summer and have yet to be disappointed. The non-slip nose piece actually works on these.
